Nice slalom and play on the Punt

Skate 111
For the first time in a long time (more than a year) I was on the Skate again. Was immediately happy again, what a nice board it is, jumps so easily and you can do a lot, but you are never punished, you jump badly, just slide the board on landing, do not bite. And stable due to the width. Delicious. Just not as fast as the rest. For the first time I also did tailgrabes, normally I only did rail-grabes with my mast hand, but today I also did a few tail-grabes. On to a no-handed jump.

Crossride 6.0
Finally sailed for the first time with my North Crossride 6.0. Trim was tricky at first, trapeze strings way too long. Boom height was a bit of a search, but then it also ran nicely, boom feels short, less stable than the Trans-Am. But gybed is even easier. Lies super netural in your hands when you throw the sail into the gybe, easy. Unfortunately, the wind quickly decreased a bit, so I was soon a bit on the small with the 6.0. But it was also late, time to stop.

Sail: North Crossride 6.0 - North Viper Wave 430cm - HPL Slalom 177-238
  (machine translated in 2023) First time with the North Sails Crossride 6.0 and also first time with the Eagle 35cm. Had to do a lot of trimming on the Crossride 6.0. Trapeze strings were way too long so I didn't feel good about the sail at first. When that was solved it went well, gybe like the fire brigade, wonderful. And speed was certainly not bad, although I didn't have enough wind for max speed.
